Earth Invaders is the first game in a trilogy of tributes to 80's arcade classics. the others being PAC MAN and Asteroids (i can hear the groans already) :D

A remake of a true classic and was my first game coded in GML. I previously posted this on the old forums but I was tidying up some code today and thought why not post it on the new forum :D

Controls are simple: curser keys left and right to control and space to fire cannon. Shoot flying saucer for mystery points. Hide behind barriers for protection

Let me know what you think. PAC MAN up soon.

I have! It's delightfully retro!
Also like how enemies sped up after I've finished clearing half of them. Was it that way for the original space invaders? (never played it)
Finally, I thought the final "game over" text seemed rather blurred.

Anyway, thanks for sharing! =D

Thank you for playing :D

Yes the invaders sped up in the original

I am doing a trilogy of the holy trinity of 80's games Space invaders, Pac Man and Asteroids.

It's nice to get some feed back.

Looks funny!
I think for learning how to code, remaking classics is an awesome oportunity.
I dont know if would play this though, not without a slight twist in the gameplay ;)
